About Roger Lautt

I have lived in Chicago since 1969 so I very much enjoy the peace and serenity that Wyhoco offers. Love to wake up to the sounds of birds rather than traffic or sirens. After spending a week here I realized it was therapeutic for me to get here as often as possible. Enjoy going for long walks with my dog Tucker, either in the woods or along the beach.

Roger Lautt purchased this house in 2000

Why Roger Lautt chose Southwest

In 1999 I had the opportunity to spend a vacation in this area and fell in love with the people and the places. I visit and vacation as often as my schedule allows and enjoy the peace and serenity of a location in the woods and beside Lake Michigan. Was certain other vacationers would also find the setting a place they would like to return to often. This location allows me to decompress and feel rested when I return to my home.

What makes this house unique

This home is a 3-5 minute walk to Lake Michigan, 1 minute to the woods. 3 minute drive to a Party Store, a restaurant. 10 minute drive to Saugatuck or South Haven. Plenty of places to walk off the beaten path. Nature lovers paradise, deer, birds and other wildlife abound.

Excellent Family Reunion Spot

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great retreat here. Plenty of room. Well equipped. Two floors, two kitchens so there was privacy for all. We had our adult children with us as well as the young nieces and nephews. It was close to get to for both our Chicago and our Detroit area families. We loved the fire pit out back. Plus it was an easy walk to the lake for everyone. Plenty of hiking as well as a short drive to town for restaurants and entertainment. We love to play card games and we had more than enough room indoors and out. We will be back again. Thanks Roger!

Favorite spot near Lake Michigan!

  • 5 of 5

Attractive and comfortable large home.We slept very well, a relaxing atmosphere. We loved the fireplace and deck out in back. The fire ring in the back is a great setting for enjoying the nearby woods, for making smores and roast hotdogs. The kitchen is well furnished so it was easy to cook and eat family meals there. We loved being close to Lake Michigan and walked on the beach there often. Great place to collect interesting rocks! The nearby shops in Saugatuck and Douglas are addicting and we love strolling in these great small towns. Good ice cream shops, coffee shops and restaurants nearby. South Haven is another favorite place for the beach and the shops.

Lovely home and great vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay for our family vacation! The house is nestled among trees, which provides a very tranquil setting and it literally a 3 minute walk to the beach, which is breathtaking. The surrounding area offers so much to see and do! We explored the local berry farms and made out like bandits with fresh sweet strawberries. We strolled through downtown Saugatuck to check out the shops and boat docks. Another evening we went to South Haven for a great dinner at Clementines and a walk on the pier. There's a great pottery place nearby too where we painted our own vases and mugs.

The house was equipped with everything we needed and more. We loved the campfire in the backyard, the grill on the deck and the inflatable rafts we found in the garage to use to float on Lake Michigan's waves. The kitchen had every pot, pan and bowl we needed to make many meals and also spices and staples, which was great. The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of living space to hang out, but still feel close together so we could enjoy each other's company.

We loved our stay and hope to visit again!

New Year's Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

My family goes up to the Saugatuck area every New Year's. Roger's home was perfectly located in a quiet association of homes with easy access to a private beach on Lake Michigan. We enjoyed walking in the evening and the creek for the kids to play in. Roger was easy to work with and very accommodating. I had relatives from out of town that arrived early. Roger was gracious enough to allow them to check in early before my family arrived. Saugatuck was 8 minutes away. Great family vacation!

Five BR House By The Beach: A Rare Find

  • 5 of 5

We have a large crowd (10-12 adults) and have had great difficulty finding a 5 BR house, one block from the beach, and close to Saugatuck--THAT IS AFFORDABLE. This is the place for a large group that doesnt want to be altogether every minute. It is almost like two houses--a complete kitchen and living area upstairs and another one downstairs. The beach is one block away; nice walk and sparsly populated beach area so lots of privacy. Plus all the attractions that Saugatuck has to offer.

We found this place 3 years ago and have rented it for a week every summer since then. We have it booked for next summer also.

Fantastic Labor Day Weekend with Family

  • 5 of 5

This property is one of the finest we have gathered our family at. It was/is most conducive to quiet peaceful retreats for family or groups. The home was easy to find, very clean and well kept. The owner was most helpful with directions, recommendations of places to shop, dine, and recreate. We found the trees and fire pit very nostalgic and heart warming during the pleasently cool fall eveings, the children loved roasting marshmellows and creating "smores" and adventuring to the onsite creek. We enjoyed it immensely and plan to return many times in the future. Thankyou for a wonderful place to retreat to from the "busyness of life". We left refreshed and recharged.
